Sun Flower Fund Bandana Day 2015

The team from Lonrho Logistics wear their hearts on their sleeve!

On October 12, The Lonrho Logistics ORTIA (O.R. Tambo International Airport) team showed their support for the Sun Flower Fund by taking part in National Bandana Day 2015.

The Sun Flower Fund is a South African based charity that raises awareness around bone marrow stem cell donation, and stem cell use in cancer treatment, particularly leukaemia. The organisation also raises funds through various events, such as National Bandana Day which go towards blood donor testing, and the expansion of the SAMBR (South Africa Bone Marrow Registry).  The day has also become significant in supporting those living with cancer, as it symbolises the many sufferers worldwide who have lost their hair due chemotherapy and wear bandanas on a daily basis.

With such a good cause to support, Lonrho Logistics sponsored 60 bandanas for the day which raised R1200 for the Sun Flower Fund. To add even more excitement to the day, a challenge put out to all the ORTIA departments: Be creative as creative as possible, and come up with a theme for bandana day! With the challenge set out, the teams went to town, trying to outdo each other.

Team Finance (Orange is the new Black) were the overall winners for their creativity, with Team Sales (Sunflowers) losing by half a point.

It was really great fun to have everybody participating and showing support for such a worthy cause, and seeing the staff take a few moments from their busy schedules to have a laugh or two.
